    At night I work on these:

    I am not a hand sewer so at night while watching tv I have been making crocheted dish cloths. Hope to have a bunch to give as gifts for Christmas next year, friends b'days, teachers gifts, etc. I made several for myself and just love them. They are quick and easy, only requires that you use 100% cotton yarn. You can also use them in the bath.

    Those are pretty. I am working on dishtowels cut in half and then crochet the top part on so it can hang at the sink or wherever. At least we get something done at night watching tv. Have fun. Sue

    Very nice and clever to have a stack on hand for gifts as needed.

    They are really nice. I got something similar for Christmas once and it was appreciated for its durability.

    Love them, too. I knit them in the car and use them as face cloths as well.

    I don't watch TV at night, usually work on a quilt after working all day. Work on a quilt on weekends while cleaning and doing laundry. I use to crochet but gave it up. My Daughter crochets.

    They make lovely gifts. My DIL has made me a couple and they just wash and wash and wash.

    I really like the varigated blue yarn you used. I make these as well and use them to remove my makeup at night.

    It is good to see your attractive washcloths. I must get started making them again as mine have all been given out. The last group that left my side were as favors for my birthday party last summer. I placed one in a party bag with pretty soap bought at the Farmer's Market then used them as table decorations first before they went homes with friends. Maybe I slipped in a couple of pieces of chocolate too.

    Would you happen to have a pattern for the tops? I have done some and just made up my pattern as I went along, but am not really satisfied with them.

    I love crocheted dish cloths also. I just finished 30 of them for my aunt and cousins. I have to make them look really "imperfect" though. Otherwise they say they are too pretty and won't use them as dish cloths!

    Even though I don't crochet, I do make these. I can crochet enough to get by with making these.

    My husband loves them to use for washing the cars also!

    Love those dish cloths too. Try to find them at craft sales around here. Guess people have quit making them.

    I've been crocheting scarves and/or hats for the homeless. Unfortunately my family keeps taking the hats!

    I made them for myself and my Mom. We put them in the top rack of the dishwasher when I put the dishes through.

    I love them. I usually buy them at Christmas and have made some but I am not great at Crochet. I have been trying to teach myself how to make net scrubbers but so far am failing!

    I love to do those, too. I often give them as gifts, but I also keep several for myself. I was noticing mine need to be replaced. Have to buy new thread next time I'm out. You encouraged me to get started. Love them.

    My 21 yr old daughter knits dishcloths as well. She'll have me go pick out the colors for a few and she does them while at her 3rd shift job. She made several for this past Christmas for gifts, then her bf popped the question on Christmas now she's making them for her future home.
